2014 Player Intro: Chris Davis

Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian sophomore Chris Davis is spending some serious time during the off-season improving his game before his junior season.

"My greatest strengths as a player is that I'm a little guy and I can get past people with my quickness and speed. In the off-season, I'm just working on getting stronger, faster, and bigger for the season," he said.

Davis is still looking for where he fits best in the offense, as he currently plays both receiver and running back.

"Usually I play slot receiver, but I'm working in more running back, so I'll be playing both this year. I grew up playing running back, but when I came in as a freshman they put me in at slot, and I feel comfortable at both," he said.

Though he's only a sophomore, Davis is already hearing from some of the strongest Pac-12 programs.

"I've been contacted by Oregon, USC, and UCLA. I like those schools a lot. They all fit me because they like the small, speedy guys in the offense and that keeps me interested," he said.

Two of Davis' Oaks Christian senior teammates, cornerback Ishmael Adams and wide receiver Jordan Payton, both signed letters of intent to play with the Bruins and are wasting no time in recruiting the team's underclassmen.

"They're trying to get me to go there, trying to get me to commit early. But we'll see," he laughs.

The 5'9", 175 lb. athlete doesn't have any sort of visit set for the next few months and is instead really working to make his junior season successful.

"This year, we're just going to work a little harder and push ourselves. We are a young team, but we're just going to try and come together as a team and work hard," he said.
